New 2021 Street Sweeping Schedule
2021 Seasonal City Street Sweeping Operations will be on a Bi-weekly rotating basis during the recycling pickup schedule. Residents can expect Street Sweeping Operations in their neighborhoods on a rotating basis on the days their recycling products are collected weather permitting. If for some reason sections are not cleaned, it will be revisited the following week by the Operations Team.
We encourage the public to remove vehicles when possible on a rotating basis so the sweeping operations can be as effective as possible within each neighborhood. This activity will continuously rotate throughout the warmer months in an effort to keep city streets as clean as possible. We appreciate the public’s cooperation and patience while we conduct this city wide effort.
